The U.S. Patent & Trademark Office revealed a Samsung patent application this week relating to an all-new dual OS operating system hybrid device.
The theoretical notebook would for example allow users to use Windows 10 by default and then switch over to Android OS and control their smartphone by placing it in the dock.

The dock will give the phablet access to the display, keyboard and touchpad of the notebook. Users can access their data just as they would through their smartphone itself, but will make you more productive.
The dock would also enable the notebook to access the internet without Wi-Fi as it will be able to use the phablet's 3G/4G networks to connect. We aren't sure how exactly the phablet gets connected to the notebook and whether other "smaller" smartphones will also be supported.
Samsung filed their U.S. Patent application back in Q3 2014. Considering that this is a patent application, the timing of such a product to market is unknown at this time.
Will this new hybrid device from Samsung charged with Microsoft's software and cloud solution be able to drill a hole into Apple's Mobile-First strategy? Only time will tell.
